First Baptism!

   This week has been great!  I got to see my first convert baptized and confirmed!  One of the best experiences of my mission!  The Spirit was so strong in the baptismal service.  It was great to work with Maria to get her ready and to get the baptismal service ready.  We were in charge of the service and it was pretty stressful while we were working at it, but it was so great to see it all work out in the end!  

Here's a great video explaining why we are baptized, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints-

Why we are baptized 

We have been working closely with Miguel and Suyapa, a recently married couple from Honduras.  We have had the opportunity to answer a lot of their questions about the Book of Mormon and that has been a wonderful experience!  We have been relying in the Spirit more in planning and that has brought about wonderful results.  For example, we decided to go to one of our farther areas to try a less active's house and they were there!  Another example, we were walking to our car to go to a new area when I felt impressed to knock on a door of a family who dropped us and they were there and let us in!  Turns out that their daughter is actually rather interested! 
  We also had Mini Missionaries this week (young men, aged 16-18, who choose to spend a weekend working as full time missionaries) which was cool!
